Jordan has helped the Knights to NCAA regional final appearances in 2015 (Tallahassee) and 2016 (Gainesville). She was a part of 2015 American Athletic Conference Coaching Staff of the Year and 2015 NFCA Mideast Region Coaching Staff of the Year, helping the program to its first regular season and tournament championship in the same year.

Jordan was inducted into her alma mater, Youngstown State's Athletic Hall of Fame in 2017, and was also named the assistant coach for the Canadian Junior Women's team for the 2019 Softball World Cup

In her fourth season at UCF, the Knights went 34-22 and took down two ranked teams (No. 23 Long Beach State and No. 4 Florida). The Knights finished third in The American Conference for the second consecutive season. The team put together a .257 batting average with a .372 slugging percentage and a .338 on-base percentage. The Knights run-ruled four teams this season posting a run difference of eight runs by the fifth inning. Defensively, UCF posted a .961 fielding percentage with four players recording a perfect fielding percentage.

The 2017 campaign saw the Knights tally the second-best batting average (.288) in program history. A program record tying eight players were named to The American All-Conference Teams.

In 2016, UCF battle in 21 games against Top 25 programs and finished runner-up in regular season standings. The Knights also won 15 games in a row, the second-longest stretch and school history.

In her first season at UCF, the Knights posted a .979 fielding percentage - the second-best mark in the nation. At the plate, the Black and Gold produced the highest batting average in program history at .292, and set at program record in on-base percentage (.364). UCF hit 39 home runs, in 2015 the fourth-most in a single season and the most since 2005. Kalyn Cenal became the first Knight to hit 10 or more home runs since the 2005 season as she finished with a team-best 11.

Jordan joined the Knights in 2014 after seven seasons as an assistant coach at her alma mater Youngstown State, including the last four as the associate head coach. She returned to YSU in the fall of 2008 after a highly decorated playing career from 2003-06 and primarily worked with the outfielders and hitters.

During her tenure as associate head coach, Jordan recruited the 2014 Horizon League Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year and developed the 2012 Horizon League Player of the Year.

A four-time All-Horizon League selection, Jordan, formerly Tiffany Patteson, finished her career at YSU as the only player in school history to play more than 200 games, starting all 205. She also set career records in hits (231), at-bats (664), doubles (56), triples (18), walks (84) and runs scored (126).

The Guelph, Ontario, native was a silver medalist at the 2003 Pan American Games as a member of Team Canada. She also competed for Team Canada from 2003-05 at the Canadian Fastpitch International Championship and played in the 2003 Softball World Cup and the 2004 World University Games.
